Life in prison is a nightmare for those who commit crimes. Imagine what it’s like for those who are in prison for a crime they did not commit.
The North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence, which coordinates the Innocence Projects® at several North Carolina law schools, is dedicated to investigating post-conviction claims of actual innocence asserted by unrepresented North Carolina inmates. The Center is part of the Innocence Network.

2007 – In 1989, 20 year-old Dwayne Dail was sentenced to two life sentences plus 18 years for the rape of a 12 year-old girl in Goldsboro, NC. The prosecution’s case relied heavily on two pieces of “evidence”: 1) the victim’s cross-racial identification of Dwayne as her rapist made six weeks after the rape and 2) a lab analyst’s testimony that hairs found at the crime scene were “microscopically consistent” with Dwayne’s.
